Singer returns to The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering for 2022 with the first restoration of a Type 964 Porsche 911 enabled by the results of the company’s Turbo Study.
Singer’s Founder and Executive Chairman, Rob Dickinson notes, “The first Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer was presented during Monterey Car Week in 2009, so it’s fitting that we’re returning to The Quail this year to present our latest idea – in celebration of the iconic Porsche 930 Turbo. Singer is a philosophy and every car we restore encapsulates our unique perspectives, the personal vision of the owner, and a celebration of heritage – reimagined with twenty-first century engineering.”
Making its North American debut is the Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer – Turbo Study.
This next generation of services from Singer encompasses:
- A celebration of the iconic, era-defining 930 Turbo, launched in 1975
